Some of the responses we have recently received from our students...

Just a quick note to thank Alan for the advanced / refresher training today. top bloke! I really felt I learned a lot and fell a lot more confident on my new bike.

It was an absolute pleasure completing my course with you guys, I cannot stress how good the teaching ability of the instructor was, his calm patient manner and is way of instruction is absolutely fantastic he tailors to your needs and has a vast amount of experience to pull from, By far the most professional amount of instruction I have had in a long time. He is a true asset to your company and I am very grateful to have been taught by him but all this comes at a price of getting the brews in. West Pennines reputation is truly built around the instructors, I can't thank you enough for your help.

As you are aware, yesterday (7th May), I passed my modular 2 motorcycle driving test at the Blackburn DSA test centre.

I wish to express my gratitude to all the staff and instructors at WPM-Training for your professionalism, goodwill and friendship so freely given during my instruction. It had been a most pleasant and informative experience.

Further, I would like to thank my "one on one" instructor Alan, for his unlimited patience, his calm approach to my white line encounters, my indifference to Left and Right commands and for his ability to enjoy the delights at Burger King.

His training methods coupled with his unique style of instruction dovetails exactly to his pupils requirements. He made what at time seem an impossibility, perfectly normal and safe.

I will have no hesitation to recommend your services to my every growing band of "wanna be's" motorcyclists.

Very Best Regards.

Just a quick e-mail to say thanks for getting me through my test from Mod 1 with no faults to Mod 2 with only 3 minors Big thanks to Steve and Dave for the lessons was a great experience and already got my first big bike CBR 600F will be recommending WPM to anyone that asks.

Hi Yvonne & team

I am just writing to say thank you and ask if you could my thanks onto Steve.

I came up about 3 weeks ago all the way from Kent; we had the most appalling weather conditions and unfortunately I failed my Mod 1.

However although I failed Steve had given me complete confidence in my riding and that I could pass the test -; I decided to take both Mod 1 & 2 by myself on my 125. I passed both of them this week (in the rain -; AGAIN!!). So I would like to say thank you for everything.

Just getting my new bike restricted at the moment and can't wait to get out on it!

Please say a big thank you to Steve for me and I will be recommending you to others.

Kind Regards

Andy Pilbeam


Would just like to say thanks for all your help throughout my training.


Hi Dave and crew,

Just dropping you a line to thank you all for your expertise, patience and professionalism during my 4 day D A S course. For you all to get me through in that time is awsome. Only god knows what my instructor was thinking as I dropped the 500cc bike 3/4 of an hour before my test. Not only that but snapped the front brake lever in the process....SORRY. Thought I would never pass my u turn part after that. Again thanks a million, highly recommended to all I speak to...

Best regards Mr S J Ross

Just a few lines to everyone at West Pennine following my successfulDAS Test today 8/8/08. I hadn't been on a motorcycle for over 25 years but I have been trainedat various levels driving police vehicles (including pursuit training) and would say that all the instructors that tutored me over the past week with yourselves have been as professional if not more so than all my previous training. They wereclearly very well trained and their techniques were second to none. I really can't praise them enough. Perhaps them most obvious thing is how enthusiastic they all seemed, and I'm sure it can be difficult with some of us newbies ! Special mentions for Alan and Steve, without both I am sure I would have failed. Thanks again. The Canadian Stand up even helped !!

You really do have a great team.

I would recommend you without hesitation.
